When we went into lockdown in March 2020 I didn’t expect it to be the catalyst to a spiritual awakening. I grappled with leaving the organization I founded, how best to take care of my son and how to let go of toxic relationships. This podcast is about the light within the darkness.
Kim is an entrepreneur, coach, wife, mother, sister, mentor and friend. She is all about women empowering women. She is the founder of Legacy - more than just a headband company (proudly made in Canada). We discuss how Beach Body can help you live your best life; food, exercise and lifestyle. We dive into the question of what Legacy means. There are a few things we discuss that have us both holding back tears. I welcome you to listen in on our conversation between two very passionate mama bears.
I sit down with Kelly Keating, a Montreal nurse to talk about what it feels like to be on the front lines of this pandemic. Before we dive into it we talk about something we both have in common and it’s super rare. We move on talk about our fur babies. Her love lies with a poodle named Theodore. Then we debate urban versus suburban living. There is much more but you will have to listen. Kelly is a light in this world and you can’t see it in this photo (which is sad for COVID patients) but her smile lights up any room or a stage.
